That's what happens when you let teenagers drive.  Probably all hopped up on honeyed beer, too.

His body was burned in a chariot crash?  Was the horse 89 octane?

Don't these 'scientists' conclude a different cause of death every few years? Sounds like someone wants to keep funding.

SNL reruns were on right before Bozo in the morning. Nothing raises a kid up right like Two Wild and Crazy Guys, Buckwheat Sings, and a little bit of Cookie and Wizzo before heading off to kindergarten.

To go a bit off-topic. I was 2 when I was on the Bob Bell's Bozo show. I wish I was old enough to appreciate his comedic timing and adult sense of humor, the replacement Bozo was more kid friendly, but still watchable.

Little known fact, Krusty the clown is based on Bob Bell's Bozo specifically. Dan Castellaneta, who grew up in Oak Park watched that Bozo growing up.

Cheer up, old fogie, you were on the Bozo Show! Did you at least win anything or were you one of those kids who sucked arse and couldn't even drop it into the first bucket without assistance?

Not really a csb. I was 2 and too young.

That grand prize game had some pretty awesome prizes back in the day. The grand prize was either a bike or a progressive pot of money if I remember correctly. Also you got some brownies or cookies that were like little debbies, but I can't remember the name of them.

Subby, I award you my one internet point of the day. (We get to give out 1 a day right?) If you get enough, you win the internets.

I do believe the brand was Archway. I'm probably wrong, but I watched a lot of reruns as a kiddo.

Archway sounds right.

Their ginger cookies are yummy.

And the almond windmills.

/sounds fat

TFA mentioned that, they believe the fire was a bad combo of embalming oil and linen after the crash.

Man that's got to be embarrassing. Here's this guy, and you've been telling everyone he's a god. Whoops, the got-king got squished.

I have been under the impression they concluded Poison was the cause of death a long time ago, did they drag him out and run him over so they could change it ?

FuturePastNow: Man that's got to be embarrassing. Here's this guy, and you've been telling everyone he's a god. Whoops, the got-king got squished.


Nope. Whilst he was a god, he was also temporarily mortal. When he died, the god-part would join up with the preserved body in the afterlife to form Pharaoh version 2.0, which would then be immortal. Like everyone else in the afterlife, but whilst all the peons would be working in the Field of Reeds to keep 'em out of trouble, you'd be sippin' brewskis and swapping stories about how you once took on a nomad twice your size with the other now-immortal pharaohs.

You can't blame everything on hair metal.

A chariot race crash or a bomb planted to make it look like a chariot race crash.
 
2013-11-04 06:18:11 AM  
Who cares? He was, at best, a minor pharaoh. The only reason he's famous is because his tomb wasn't already looted when the archeologists found him.
 
2013-11-04 06:32:18 AM  
It was Cleopatra. Wouldn't you have done the same if you had Ben Hur?
